EMA Integration: Changing assessment details in RISIS

Helpful tip!

This article explains what you need to do if you discover that assessment details have been entered incorrectly in RISIS.

Has the Module been flagged in RISIS as ‘Ready to integrate with Blackboard’?


  • Locate the assessment record in RISIS and enter the correct details.
  • Do not flag the Module as Ready until all details are correct.


If the Integration has already created columns in the Blackboard Grade Centre, the steps required are more complex.

N.B. Further Blackboard enhancements in the future should make it possible to update data in RISIS, and have the updated information transferred to Blackboard.
